    Shakespeare-Wallah was shot on a tiny budget, most of it funded from the sale of The Householder to Columbia. Ivory shot on location in black-and-white to save money and he relied on his documentary background to direct the film with a naturalistic approach that gives the film a texture of realism and immediacy. Like its title, Shakespeare Wallah is a film of unexpected juxtapositions and cultural conflict; it is a look at changing values in art, and an examination of the question of what it means to be indigenous to a place. The nomadic lifestyle of the poor players.
